The wonderful fingerprint sensors we have in the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P have accredited themselves as amazing revelations if we narrow ourselves to the aspect of ease accompanying the phones as to unlocking your phone. This brings in an extra dosage of security for apps as well as payment authentication systems. And now it is as an “B” after “A” (normal) that a muscular number of Nexus users have adopted the technology.
At the 3rd Annual Google Security Update session at Google I/O 2016, Stephan Somogyi from Google revealed the interesting hint of data — counting back into the launch of the Nexus 5X and 6P, 90% of Nexus users now make use of a secure lock screen on their phone.
Now before the launch of these phones, secure lock screen usage was doing much less trying to make its way up from say 50% amongst Nexus users, even in face of features like Smart lock which was well anticipated to make the secure lock screen much more enchanting to users- while maintaining the simplicity of having your phone unlock via just a swipe in some scenarios.
So now seeing this athletic leap to 90% secure lock screen usage would not be said to be wholly gasping taking our mind to the convenience with which the Nexus 5X and 6P fingerprint sensors are to use, but then the quick change in user behavior is really wonderful to experience.
The reaction of Nexus users to the functionality of a fingerprint sensor can be drawn closely with that which escorted Apple’s introduction of easy-to-use Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the iPhone. And in these two situations, the increasing count of people using lock screens and fingerprint security on their phones, the actually the better.
